Flute Forward by PanTones Quartet

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd and 63rd St.)

The Quartet plays a versatile repertoire that explores the variety of music created for the flute. Under the direction of Felipe Tristan, PanTones Quartet celebrates flute works from the 20th and 21st centuries, highlighting innovative music for a new generation. Flute Forward focuses on music that played a crucial role in the development of the instrument, and includes works by Borwn, Debussy, Takemitsy, and Varése.

Lulacruza

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 63rd St.)

Lulacruza is an electronic folk duo that weaves together hypnotic female singing, South American instruments, found sound objects, field recordings, and electronic manipulation. The result is cross-genre music with up-tempo, handcrafted South American rhythms that “…bring together Colombia and Argentina with the rest of the world in an electro ethnic ritual” (Rolling Stone). The duo is made up of Alejandra Ortiz (Colombia), an extraordinary songbird who plays the Colombian cuatro, shruti box, tar and kalimba; and Luis Maurette (Argentina), who adds electronic processing and sequencing as well as percussion, charango, and Amazonian flutes. Together they make music that is hard to classify, but has been called pop, folk, electronic, Latin, ambient, world, new age, ethnic, experimental, and even jazz.

A Bookmobile for Dreamers

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center (Broadway between 62nd & 63rd St.)

Sculptor, photographer, and filmmaker Lothar Osterburg has created this unusual work, inspired by the joy of browsing through books and the imaginary worlds created when we read. These worlds are brought to life by combining sounds such as mating frogs in the Grand Canyon, squeaking doors, and a washing machine with real time video, stop motion animation, and special effects. Osterburg builds small models for the audience from readily available materials, and Elizabeth Brown—who collects sounds the way Osterburg collects found objects—accompanies his creations with a theremin that sings over the electronic soundscapes she makes from recordings of everyday sounds. The result is a totally original meditation on books, reading, and culture.

Presented in collaboration with the Bogliasco Foundation
